Just noticed the specs for this have changed from region free to region A.

Guessing this will be locked then, this is a first for VS isn't it?

Suppose a UK release is on the horizon.

I just received it earlier today, and it shows the "A/B/C" region icon on the back cover.

I tested in on my multi-region player, and it plays fine when set to B or C. So I'm not sure what the deal is with the web site listing's region change.

Thanks for testing, appreciate it.

Odd, I mentioned the region code change in the VS thread and John Lyons said it was changed due to contractual obligations. I guess not then

Review from Mondo Digital.....

I recommend you find a copy of the novel, it's sick (in a good way).

Thanks for the pics. The quality is surprisingly good for deleted footage. Humanoids From The Deep also had some very well preserved deleted footage.

Amazon shipped mine Sunday, should have it tomorrow.

Got mine today... very good restoration job, considering it's not an "A" list movie. Boosted colors, filmic grain,overall a great improvement over my old DVD.

Default Re: Where does the story take place?

I skimmed through the disc. There are two spots in the movie where Wisconsin license plates are clearly visible (while other cars have the same plate colors). For example, just before the 59-minute mark, Jenny goes to her car, and the plate is clearly legible. The funny thing is that her car also sports a bumper sticker that says something like "I visited Galen but it was closed for repairs."

Once again, although the New England vibe feels strong, the past events haunting the town are only about 30 years prior which would be roughly around 1950, a TARDIS trip away from the early 1690s of the Salem witchcraft trials.

I seem to remember I read somewhere online the appearances of the Incubus (great makeup fx) were originally (either on page or on film) much longer and the scenes in general a lot more graphic, but somehow that all ended up either being cut from the final script or on the cutting room floor...Shame. This movie is one of my guilty pleasures...

I like the creature design very much and itís a shame that little is seen of it. It wouldnít surprise me if much more demon footage was filmed.

The director is interviewed for one of the featurettes, discussing his disappointment with the creature design - wanting a less tangible demon - more like a misty, ghost-like presence instead.

[Show spoiler]In the 1976 novel by Ray Russell, the Incubusí c*ck is described as being about the same length and thickness as a manís arm - imagine trying to realise that on film without offending viewers and receiving an X-rating. For the film, the demon is nowhere near as well endowed.

In the small New England town of Galen, authorities are baffled by a series of murders and brutal rapes. The general consensus of the police community is that multiple people are involved in the crimes, but Sam, a medical examiner played by John Cassavetes (Rosemary's Baby), and the local sheriff, played by John Ireland (Red River), believe that one man of extraordinary strength is behind the attacks. Meanwhile, Tim, a teenage boy played by Duncan McIntosh (Murder by Phone), is experiencing vivid dreams involving occult killings, only to discover upon waking that the murders around the town are coinciding with each dream. With the help of a newspaper reporter, played by Kerrie Keane (Spasms), Sam and the sheriff are slowly swayed into believing that the deaths may be attributed to a supernatural entity, but the threat is closer than any of them can imagine.

The 1982 American-Canadian co-production, The Incubus, which was directed by John Hough (The Legend of Hell House, The Watcher in the Woods) and based on the 1976 novel of the same name by Ray Russell, combines the plot mechanics of 1980s slasher cinema with the brilliantly understated supernatural horror films of the 1970s that featured A-list actors who were fully invested in their roles. The specifics of the grisly attacks are dealt with in a disturbingly frank way, with doctors and policemen discussing explicit details of rape injuries, so this story, which could have been a ridiculous endeavor in lesser hands, is bolstered by an uncannily realistic approach. At the same time, however, some pivotal scenes are graced with sensory overload by way of several songs by the British rock band, FM, while one movie theater scene features a promo video by the iconic metal vocalist, Bruce Dickinson, and his pre-Iron Maiden band, Samson.

Cinematographer Albert J. Dunk (Class of 1984) lends an unnerving visual aesthetic to the proceedings, especially during one sequence where a wheelchair-bound woman discovers a murder. The film also draws atmosphere from several Gothic architecture buildings that are used as shooting locations. The makeup effects are top-notch. Finally, the conclusion delivers one of the most intense gut punches of 1980s horror.

I remember seeing television ads for The Incubus when it was released during my childhood, but the movie dropped off the face of the Earth after its theatrical release. Today, this blend of murder mystery and occult horror stands as an under-recognized hallmark of scary cinema from that decade.

Be on the lookout for Erin Noble (Class of 1984) as Sam's daughter. Helen Hughes (Billy Madison, Tommy Boy) is also fantastic as Tim's protective mother who tried to convince her son that there is nothing alarming about his terrifying nightmares.

This Vinegar Syndrome Blu-ray delivers a remarkable video presentation, especially considering the difficulty finding surviving elements. We are also treated to several great extras, including interviews with Hough, Keane, and Dunk, along with a fun commentary by The Hysteria Continues.
